The risk of making a move to the digital medium while being a mainstream Bollywood actor, proved well worth it for Vivek Oberoi, who most recently won ‘Best Personality on Web’ at Indian Wikimedia Digital Awards, which is one of India’s biggest awards dedicated to web entertainment.
Honouring the best minds in digital content, IWM Digital Awards is India’s first B2C digital awards, recognizing content creation and excellence in the dynamic digital space.
The versatile actor earned this award with his stupendous performance as a mastermind in Amazon India’s first fictional series, Inside Edge. Not only was Vivek’s menacing debonair act as Vikrant Dhawan, a hit with the viewers, but it also won him Best Actor in Web Series at Indian Television Academy Awards, 2017.
Soon enough, Vivek will conquer the digital arena again as he reunites with Ekta Kapoor after Shootout At Lokhandwala and Rakhta Charitra, with ALTBalaji’s digital show, ‘The Family’. It was earlier revealed that the actor had shook on a three seasons deal with the digital forum and will be seen playing a grey character, who is the brains behind the operations of the titular family.
